Dear Reader: 

This document contains the combined Texas Resource Management Plan (RMP) and Record of Decision 
(ROD). The ROD and Plan are combined to streamline our mandated land-use-planning requirements and 
to provide the reader with a useable finished product. 

The ROD records the decisions of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for administration of Federal 
mineral resources within the Texas Planning Area. 

The Texas RMP and appendices provide direction and guidance to BLM Managers in the formulation of 
decisions effecting the management of Federal resources within the planning area for the next 20 years. 
The Texas RMP was extracted from the Proposed Texas RMP/Final Environmental Impact Statement. 

The Planning Area encompasses BLM administered split-estate minerals as well as Federal minerals under 
Federal surface administered by other Federal Agencies within the State of Texas. 

The issuance of this ROD and RMP completes the BLM land use planning process for the State of Texas. 
We now move to implementation of the plan. We wish to thank all the individuals and groups who 
participated in this effort these past two years, without their help we could not have completed this 
process. 



Sincerely, 




*aul Tanner 
Assistant District Manager 



RECORD OF DECISION 

The decision is hereby made to approve the proposed decisioas as described in the Proposed Texas Resource 
Management Plan/Final Environmental Impact Statement (RMP/FEIS February 1996). 

MANAGEMENT CONSIDERATIONS 

The decision to approve the Proposed Plan is based on: (1.) the input received from the public, other Federal and 
state agencies; (2.) the environmental analysis for the alternatives considered in the Draft RMP/Draft EIS, as well 
as, the Proposed Texas RMP/FEIS. By adoption of this plan, anticipated impacts as described in both the Draft and 
Final EIS will be minimized. 

IMPLEMENTATION AND MONITORING 

The approved Texas RMP provides specific management decisions for the planning area for the next 20 years. Plan 
monitoring will be performed by periodic managerial review to ensure that all subsequent management decisions 
conform to the Plan and to the established guidelines. On-the-ground actions resulting from management decisions 
will be monitored by agency personnel to establish how effective the management measures are at minimizing 
environmental impacts. 

PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT 

Public opinion, input and involvement has been sought throughout the planning and decision making process. Public 
participation was documented in detail in Chapter 5 of the Proposed RMP/FEIS. An annual RMP summary 
document will be prepared to inform the public of the progress made in plan implementation. 

CONSISTENCY/PROTEST RESOLUTION 

No inconsistencies with the plans, programs, and policies of other Federal agencies or state and local governments 
were identified during the planning process, including the Governors consistency review. No protests were received 
on the Proposed Texas RMP/FEIS 

PUBLIC AVAILABILITY OF THIS DOCUMENT 

Copies of this document can be obtained by contacting the Bureau of Land Management, 221 North Service Road, 
Moore, Oklahoma 72160. 

CONCLUSION 

This Record of Decision constitutes the final Bureau action involved in the approval of the Texas Resource 
Management Plan. Any person adversely affected by a decision of the Bureau Officer in implementing some portion 
of a Resource Management Plan may appeal such action to the Interior Board of Land Appeals pursuant to 43 Code 
of Federal Regulations 4.400 at the time the action is proposed for implementation.

INTRODUCTION 



The Texas Resource Management Plan (RMP) 
provides the Bureau of Land Management 
(BLM) a comprehensive framework for 
managing the Federally owned minerals in the 
State of Texas. The RMP establishes program 
constraints, resource objectives and resource 
management methods. 

Management decisions presented in this plan 
will remain in effect until the plan is amended, 
revised or replaced by a new plan. If 
significant changes occur in the proposed uses 
of Federal minerals within the state, the RMP 
will be amended or revised to address those 
changes. 

This RMP fulfills the Federal Land Policy and 
Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA) 
requirements for comprehensive land use 
planning for public lands. All actions within 
this document conform to and are designed to 
meet the requirements of the Mineral Leasing 
Act for Acquired Lands of August 7, 1947, as 
amended (30 U.S.C. 351-359). 

DESCRIPTION OF PLANNING AREA 



The planning area to be addressed by the Texas 
RMP/EIS consists of the Federally owned 
mineral estate administered by the BLM. This 
area is comprised of the Federal mineral estate 
underlying other Federal Surface Management 
Agencies (SMAs) lands as well as split-estate 
(non-Federal surface over Federal minerals) 
minerals scattered throughout the state. 

There are approximately 3.4 million acres of 
SMA lands within Texas. There is a lesser 
amount of Federal minerals underlying these 
surface lands due to the Federal SMAs not 
acquiring the mineral estate for certain projects 
or portions of projects. For land use planning 
purposes however, all acreage within the 
administrative boundaries of the SMAs are 
treated as Federal. 

The planning area does not include the 
approximately 1.1 million acres of U.S. Forest 
Service (USFS) managed lands located in the 
National Forests and National Grasslands of 
Texas. The USFS is responsible for preparing 
their own land use plans for lands and minerals 
under their administrative control. 



The State of Texas is situated in the 
south-central portion of the contiguous 
forty-eight states of the United States and is 
bordered by four American states; Arkansas, 
Louisiana, New Mexico and Oklahoma and 
four Mexican states; Chihuahua, Coahuila, 
Nuevo Leon, Tampaulipas. 

The area of the state is approximately 266,807 
square miles, which consist of 262,017 square 
miles of land and 4,790 square miles of inland 
water. Texas is divided into 254 counties and 
has a coastline of 624 miles along the Gulf of 
Mexico (Map 1). 



All Federal minerals within Texas are 
classified as acquired. Acquired minerals 
result from a Federal agency's acquisition of 
private or state lands and the underlying 
mineral estate for a specific purpose or project 
such as a military base or reservoir site. 

When acquired lands are no longer needed, the 
government disposes of these lands through 
transfers to non-Federal ownership. In some 
cases, the government retains ownership of the 
mineral estate under the lands disposed. These 
severed mineral estates are known as 
split-estate. For oil and gas leasing purposes

It should be noted that the SMA project lands 
(surface) far exceed the Federal mineral 
ownership in the state. Not all minerals were 
acquired at the time of project development. 
In addition to the SMA project lands, the 
planning area includes Federal split-estate 
minerals located throughout the state. The 
exact locations of this Federal split-estate are 
not mapped or easily described due to the 
metes and bounds lands descriptions used in 
Texas. 



resolved administratively and did not, during 
initial public scoping, appear to meet the 
criteria to qualify as a planning issue. 

The issue examined by the Texas RMP was 
identified based upon the judgment of the 
planning team and BLM management 
consultation. The issue addressed the 
anticipated concerns of the public, industry and 
other Federal, state and local agencies. 

ISSUE: Leasing and development of Federal 
oil and gas in Texas. 

The issue was further broken down into the 
following leasing categories: 

1. Open-Subject to Standard Terms and 
Conditions (STC). 



PLANNING ISSUE. CRITERIA AND 
MANAGEMENT CONCERNS 

The BLM planning regulations equate land-use 
planning with problem solving and issue 
resolution. An issue is defined as an 
opportunity, conflict or problem regarding the 
use or management of public land and 
resources. 



These areas will be open for oil and gas leasing 
and development subject to standard lease 
terms and conditions. These are the areas 
where the terms and conditions of a standard 
lease form are sufficient to protect other land 
uses and/or resource values. 

2. Open-Subject to Seasonal or Other Minor 
Constraints. 



Planning criteria are the standards, rules and 
measures used for data collection and 
alternative formulation, which will guide final 
plan selection. Planning criteria are taken 
from appropriate laws and regulations, BLM 
manuals and directives and concerns expressed 
in meetings and consultations, both with the 
public and other agencies. 

Management concerns are those non-issue 
related procedures or land-use allocations 
which have proven, during the preparation of 
this RMP/EIS, to need modification. 
Management concerns focus on use conflicts, 
requirements or conditions that cannot be 



These areas will be open for oil and gas leasing 
and development subject to minor constraints 
such as seasonal restrictions (wildlife, 
recreation, etc.). These areas are where 
moderately restrictive lease stipulations may be 
required to mitigate potential impacts to other 
land uses or resource values. 

3. Open-Subject to No Surface Occupancy 
(NSO) and Similar Major Constraints. 

These areas will be open for oil and gas leasing 
and development subject to major constraints 
such as NSO stipulations on areas larger than 
40 acres in size or more than 1/4 mile in 



width. These are the areas that require highly 
restrictive lease stipulations in order to mitigate 
potential impacts to other land uses or resource 
values. 

4. Closed to Leasing. 

These areas will be closed to leasing. These 
areas are where other land uses or resource 
values cannot be adequately protected by the 
most restrictive lease stipulations and 
appropriate protection can only be ensured by 
closing the area to leasing. 

MANAGEMENT DIRECTION 



addressing the issues must satisfy the following 
planning criteria: 

1. All proposed actions must comply with 
laws, executive orders, policy and regulations. 

2. For each proposed action, the resource 
outputs must be reasonable and achievable with 
available technology. 

3. The RMP describes the specific 
circumstances within which lease stipulations 
would be subject to waiver. Those lease 
stipulations not subject to waiver are also 
described. 



Existing leases may contain stipulations that are 
either too restrictive or not restrictive enough 
in terms of the goals and objectives established 
in areas where the preceding lease stipulation 
categories may apply. The existing lease terms 
can only be modified by the agreement of both 
parties to the lease or after lease termination. 

PLANNING CRITERIA 

The following describes the planning criteria 
that were used in addressing the planning 
issues. All alternatives considered for 
management of the identified issues or 



4. All proposed actions will be evaluated to 
consider long term benefits to the public in 
relation to short term benefits. 

5. Each proposed action will provide for the 
orderly development of leasable minerals while 
keeping environmental impacts to a minimum. 

6. Surface actions not controlled by, or under 
the authority of, the BLM are not addressed by 
the RMP/EIS. Surface uses authorized by the 
surface owner or the SMA are not subject to 
discussion in the RMP/EIS. 



RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PLAN 

This plan is for all Federal minerals within 
Texas that are under the jurisdiction of the 
BLM. This RMP was developed with 
guidance provided by the planning criteria, 
public consultation, coordination with other 
agencies and evaluation by BLM. 

The Texas RMP/EIS is not a land use plan for 
private, state or other Federal SMA resources. 
BLM has no surface jurisdiction over 
split-estate Federal minerals administrated by 
the agency, nor does the BLM have surface 
land use authority concerning Federal SMA 
lands. Under the various Federal mineral 
leasing laws, regulations and programs, the 
Federal SMA must grant consent to mineral 
leasing and subsequent minerals development 
prior to the BLM offering the tract(s) for lease. 
The SMA retains all authority to manage their 
programs and surface resources while 
management of the mineral estate is vested 
with the BLM. 



MANAGEMENT 



CONTINUING 
GUIDANCE (CMG) 



This section describes resource management 
guidance that is applicable to, and therefore 
constitutes a part of, the RMP. CMG is 
provided by laws, executive orders, 
regulations, Interior Departmental manuals, 
BLM manuals and BLM instruction 
memoranda. CMG also includes decisions 
from preceding land use plans, cooperative 
agreements or memoranda of understanding 
with other state and Federal agencies. 

The BLM resource management programs 
which may be affected by management 
decisions resulting from this RMP and a brief 
description of these resource programs are: 
1) the wildlife program, which includes 



threatened and endangered (T&E) species 
responsibilities for both plants and animals; 
2) the cultural resources program, which 
involves paleontological, archeological and 
historic resources management responsibilities; 
and 3) the minerals management program, 
which involves all mineral resources and their 
management. 

Current management of these programs can 
best be described as responsive and custodial. 
Leasing of the mineral estate, specifically for 
oil and gas production, has been in response to 
industry demands. These two situations will 
help the reader understand the program 
descriptions that follow. 

1. WILDLIFE (INCLUDING SSS) 

The function of the BLM's wildlife 
management program in Texas is to provide 
support for mineral actions. The program 
activities in Texas are limited to participation 
in team efforts to prepare environmental 
analyses, special status species (SSS, state and 
Federal T&E species and etc.) evaluations, 
wetland/riparian evaluations and development 
of wildlife resource stipulations and conditions 
of approval (CO A). 

Federal minerals under private surface or 
Federal surface managed by another Federal 
agency or licensed by another Federal agency 
to a state or local agency for surface 
management purposes are the most common 
situations encountered in BLM's wildlife 
management program in Texas. In these 
situations BLM's wildlife responsibilities in 
Texas do not begin until a BLM mineral action 
(leasing and/or development) is proposed. 

Wildlife habitats, common wildlife species and 
special status plant and animal species are very 
diverse and numerous in a large state such as 
Texas. Approximately 70 species of plants and 



animals are currently Federally listed as T&E 
in the state. There are many more species that 
are Federal candidate species (category 1 and 
2) and species listed by the State of Texas as 
T&E. Only through close site specific 
coordination with the four Ecological Services 
Offices of the U.S. Department of the Interior, 
Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), FWS State 
Administrator's office and the Texas Parks and 
Wildlife Department (TPWD) is the BLM able 
to keep abreast of the ever changing habitat 
and SSS concerns throughout Texas. 

Some additional wildlife agency coordination 
will be performed for mineral leasing after this 
RMP is completed. The uncertainty 

concerning the location of the split-estate 
minerals in Texas makes some pre-leasing/post- 
RMP wildlife agency coordination necessary. 
Also, every post- leasing action which would 
result in surface disturbing activities would be 
analyzed in a BLM environmental assessment 
(EA) and an "Evaluation of Special Status 
Species, Wetlands and Riparian Zones". 
Agency coordination letters would be mailed to 
the TPWD and the appropriate FWS office on 
all post-leasing oil and gas actions which would 
result in surface disturbing activities. Such 
surface disturbing actions would include 
Applications for Permit to Drill (APD) or 
Sundry Notices submitted for actions on Indian 
or Federal oil and gas leases. Site specific 
agency coordination would include a discussion 
of lease stipulations and notices. 

The Endangered Species Act of 1973, as 
amended, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, E.O. 
11990, Protection of Wetlands, BLM policies 
regarding protection and management of 
wetlands and riparian areas and information 
received from the FWS and the TPWD have 
influenced the development and application of 
the stipulations and lease notices (LN). LN's 
are advisory in function and do not mandatorily 
require any action. 



2. CULTURAL RESOURCES 

ARCHEOLOGICAL/HISTORIC 

The cultural resource program activities in 
Texas consist of development of environmental 
analysis reports; site specific evaluations or 
inventories of cultural resources in support of 
mineral leasing and development, development 
of terms and conditions of impact mitigation or 
impact avoidance, and consultations with state 
agencies and Indian tribes. Program 
involvement associated with mineral leasing 
under other Federal SMA properties is limited 
to coordination and consultation with other 
Federal and state agencies and Federally 
recognized Indian tribes. 

Consultation directly with Federally recognized 
Indian tribes is regularly performed to comply 
with the American Indian Religious Freedom 
Act, Public Law (P.L.) 95-341. These 
consultations do not depend upon tribal 
ownership of mineral rights in a development 
area, but result from tribal history, sacred or 
ceremonial areas or unmarked graves possible 
in an area of development. Negotiations with 
specific Indian tribes will also be conducted 
when any newly discovered Indian graves are 
claimed for repatriation in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and 
Repatriation Act of 1990, P.L. 101-601. 

PALEONTOLOGICAL RESOURCES 

The paleontological resource program activities 
in Texas consists of development or review of 
environmental analysis reports; site specific 
evaluations or inventories of paleontological 
resources in support of mineral leasing and 
development, and application of terms and 
conditions for impact mitigation or to avoid 
impacts. 



3. MINERALS 

Federal minerals occurring in commercial 
quantities in Texas include oil and gas and coal 
or lignite. Federal lignite leasing in Texas was 
addressed in the Draft and Final Camp Swift 
Lignite Leasing EIS of 1980 and is included as 
CMC 

At this time the BLM's fluid minerals 
management program consists of oil and gas 
leasing and the associated development and 
operations oversight. Currently there are 
approximately 350,000 acres of BLM 
administered Federal mineral estate in Texas 
under oil and gas lease. The Fluid Minerals 
Assessment completed by the BLM indicates 
that most of the state is in a moderate oil and 
gas development potential category. 

Procedures for reviewing oil and gas lease 
applications vary depending upon the category 
of surface ownership. Proposals to lease 
split-estate minerals require the BLM to 
prepare a site-specific EA and assure that 
necessary surface protection stipulations are 
attached to the lease. Procedures for leasing 
on other SMA minerals are similar to 
split-estate procedures except that the SMA is 
contacted for approval to lease and also for 
identification of specific agency surface 
protection stipulations. The BLM is 
responsible for National Environmental Policy 
Act (NEPA) compliance documentation which 
could include preparing a site-specific EA that 
addresses the proposal. 

All Federal oil and gas leasing and lease 
operations in Texas are conducted following 
procedures established and presented in 
43 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 3100. 
Prior to operations, a site specific 
environmental analysis of the proposed well 
site may result in additional considerations 
before approval of an APD. 



Lease activities in Texas involve on-site 
inspections before approving an APD, drilling 
plan review and lease operations inspection and 
enforcement. Lease operations are regulated 
by lease terms, regulations and stipulations that 
may be attached to the lease to protect specific 
resource values identified by an EA or EIS. 

Geophysical operations within Texas are not 
controlled or authorized by the BLM. Each 
SMA and surface owner negotiates and controls 
surface uses which includes access for 
geophysical exploration activities. 

RMP ACTIONS 

The RMP is a comprehensive land use plan to 
guide future management of lands and 
resources. The issue addressed in the Texas 
RMP is the leasing and development of Federal 
oil and gas in Texas. The selected RMP is the 
"Proposed RMP" as described in the Proposed 
Texas RMP/Final EIS. 

THE RMP FOR OIL AND GAS LEASING 
AND DEVELOPMENT 

Split-Estate Lands 

All new leases and all expired leases that are 
reissued would be leased with surface resource 
protection stipulations. Mandatory stipulations 
would be incorporated into each lease where 
those stipulations apply. In addition, optional 
stipulations will be included where resource 
values exist that warrant special protection. 

SMA Lands 

All new leases and all expired leases that are 
reissued would be leased with stipulations 
currently identified by the SMA. Additional 
stipulations may be applied to these SMA lands 
where the BLM determines additional 



8 



stipulations may be necessary to protect 
resource values warranting protection greater 
than provided by the SMA stipulations. 

FEDERAL OIL AND GAS LEASE 
STIPULATIONS 

A Federal oil and gas lease is a contract 
between the Federal government and an 
individual or corporation (lessee) which allows 
the lessee to extract oil and gas from the 
Federal mineral estate for a percentage 
(royalty) of the gross value. 

The terms of the lease are considered 
contractual obligations of the lessee and are 
standardized on all Federal oil and gas leases. 
The terms and conditions of an oil and gas 
lease provide general protection of surface and 
subsurface resources for normal operations and 
are known as the Standard Terms and 
Conditions (STC). A copy of the STC of a 
Federal oil and gas lease are presented in the 
Appendix. The Federal government also 
utilizes leasing stipulations to protect unique 
values or important resources when it is felt 
that the STC are not adequate. 

Proposals to lease split-estate minerals require 
the BLM to prepare a site specific EA and 
assure that necessary surface protection 
stipulations are attached to the lease. 
Procedures for leasing on other SMA minerals 
are similar to split estate procedures except that 
the SMA is contacted for consent to lease and 
also for identification of specific agency 
surface protection stipulations. Stipulations to 
a lease involve additional restrictions required 
of the lessee for conduct of operations on a 
lease. Stipulations are attached to a lease at 
the time of lease offer, providing the potential 
lessee the opportunity not to bid on the lease if 
these restrictions are not agreeable. 



The Mineral Leasing Act for Acquired Lands, 
30U.S.C. 351, requires that the SMA 
stipulations must be included on a lease. 
Further, as presented in 43 CFR 3101.7-l(a) 
"Acquired lands shall be leased only with the 
consent of the surface management agency, 
which upon receipt of a description of the lands 
from the authorized officer, shall report to the 
authorized officer that it consents to leasing 
with stipulations, if any, or withholds consent 
or objects to leasing." Additional, more 
restrictive stipulations can be added by the 
BLM. Specific BLM action in regard to SMA 
stipulations is mandated by 
43 CFR3101.7-2(a) "Where the surface 
managing agency has consented to leasing with 
stipulations and the Secretary decides to issue 
(a lease), the authorized officer shall 
incorporate the stipulations into any lease 
which it may issue. The authorized officer 
may add additional stipulations." 

Exceptions to a lease stipulation, waiver of a 
lease stipulation or modification of a lease 
stipulation are explained in the Federal 
regulations at 43 CFR 3101.1-4. Generally, an 
exception, waiver or modification may be 
approved if the record shows that 
circumstances or protected resource values 
have changed or if the lessee can demonstrate 
that operations can be conducted without 
causing unacceptable impacts and that less 
restrictive stipulations will protect the public 
interest. Exceptions, waivers and 

modifications can only be granted by the 
Authorized Officer. If the proposed exception, 
waiver or modification is inconsistent with the 
land use plan, the plan will be amended or 
changed or the exception, waiver or 
modification will be disallowed. 

Exceptions are considered on a case by case 
basis and are subject to an environmental 
analysis. Exception to a leasing stipulation will 
be granted by the Authorized Officer if the 



reason for the exception is consistent with that 
analysis. No public notice is required for 
exceptions to lease stipulations which conform 
to the plan. Exceptions which do not conform 
to the plan may be granted only upon plan 
amendment and public notification. 

A stipulation waiver is the complete elimination 
of a stipulation from a particular lease contract. 
A stipulation is waived by the Authorized 
Officer after preparation of an EA and a 
decision is made that the stipulation in question 
is no longer required for a particular lease. 
The decision to waive a substantial stipulation 
requires a plan amendment and a 30 day public 
notice period prior to waiver. 

Modifications to a lease stipulation are made if 
and when resource management determines the 
stipulation is no longer effective as written. 
This situation could occur when new 
information, obtained by inventory or 
monitoring, etc. indicates that the protective 
measure is unnecessarily restrictive. 
Modification of a stipulation requires the 
preparation of an EA to determine the potential 
impacts and/or plan amendment or maintenance 
needs. If the modification is determined to be 
substantial by the Authorized Officer, a 30 day 
public notice period prior to modifying the 
lease stipulation is required. 

Stipulations attached to a lease as a condition 
of consent by a SMA are not subject to 
exception, waiver or modification by the BLM. 

BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT 
STIPULATIONS 

Stipulations utilized within the Tulsa District 
include both mandatory and optional 
stipulations. A mandatory stipulation is one 
which addresses protection of a resource which 
the BLM is required by law, regulation or 



policy to protect and which the BLM feels STC 
would not offer sufficient protection. 

Mandatory stipulations include: 

ORA-1, Floodplain Protection Stipulation 

"All or portions of the lands under this lease 
lie in and or adjacent to a major watercourse 
and are subject to periodic flooding. Surface 
occupancy of these areas will not be allowed 
without the specific approval, in writing, by 
the Bureau of Land Management. " 

This stipulation is a result of Executive 
Order (E.O.) 11988, Floodplain Management, 
of May 24, 1977. 

ORA-2, Wetland/Riparian Stipulation 

"All or portions of the lands under this lease 
contain wetland and/or riparian areas. Surface 
occupancy of this tract will not be allowed 
without the specific approval, in writing of the 
Bureau of Land Management. Impacts or 
disturbance to wetlands and riparian habitats 
which occur on this lease, must be avoided or 
mitigated. The mitigation shall be developed 
during the application for permit to drill 
process." 

The wetland/riparian stipulation is mandated by 
E.O. 11990, Protection of Wetlands, of 
May 24, 1977. 

Optional stipulations would be applied to 
protect a resource value or other land use 
which would be potentially impacted by normal 
oil and gas lease operations. These stipulations 
are optional in the sense that they are not 
mandated by law or regulation. They will be 
used only when the value of the resource 
warrants protection. 



:c 



Optional stipulations include: 

ORA-3, Season of Use Stipulation 

"Surface occupancy of this lease will not be 
allowed from date . through date , without 
the specific approval in writing, from the 
Authorized Officer of the Bureau of Land 
Management. " 

This stipulation restricts the time period that 
the lessee can be on the lease. This is usually 
only necessary when the restriction would 
result in more than a 60 day delay in 
commencing operations (by regulation BLM 
can specify up to a 60 day delay as a result of 
the APD analysis). Most season of use 
restrictions involve wildlife seasonal use 
requirements or recreation use conflicts with 
drilling activities. 

ORA-4, No Surface Occupancy (NSO) 

"Surface occupancy of this lease will not be 
allowed. " 

This stipulation prohibits surface use to protect 
a resource or use that is not compatible with 
oil and gas development. The tract could be 
leased for inclusion in a drilling unit and may 
be drilled directionally from an off-site location 
where occupancy is allowed. 

NM-8, Coal Protection 

This stipulation requires that any Federal oil 
and gas operator must coordinate development 
with the Federal coal lessee. This stipulation 
is used to protect the value of the Federal coal 
resource. 



NM-9, No Surface Occupancy, Pooling 
Purposes Only 

This stipulation prohibits surface use as well as 
directional drilling into Federal minerals. This 
stipulation is used to protect a resource or use 
that is not compatible with oil and gas 
development. The tract could be leased for 
inclusion in a drilling unit to meet an operators 
spacing requirements. 

LEASE NOTICES (LN) 

A LN provides more detailed information 
concerning limitations that already exist in law, 
lease terms, regulations or operational orders. 
A LN also addresses special items the lessee 
should consider when planning operations, but 
does not impose new or additional restrictions. 
LN's attached to leases should not be confused 
with Notices to Lessees (NTL). 

LN-1, Threatened and Endangered Species 

"According to preliminary information all or 
portions of this lease area could contain 
Federal and/or state listed threatened or 
endangered species and/or their habitats. Any 
proposed surface disturbing activity may 
require an inventory and consultation with the 
FWS and/or the state wildlife agency. The 
consultation could take up to 180 days to 
complete. Surface occupancy could be 
restricted or not allowed as a result of the 
consultation. Appropriate modifications to the 
imposed restrictions will be made for the 
maintenance and operations of producing oil 
and gas wells." 



II 



CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL AND 
GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR OIL 

AND GAS OPERATIONS ON FEDERAL 
AND INDIAN LEASES (KANSAS, 
OKLAHOMA AND TEXAS) 



Additional BLM requirements to protect a 
resource or value that does not affect the 
lessee's rights or restrict location on the lease 
can be imposed as a COA of the APD or as a 
general requirement for operating a Federal oil 
and gas lease. 

Initially these resource protection measures are 
developed as COAs and then, should they be 
found to be generally applied to all APDs, they 
become part of the list of General 
Requirements for Oil and Gas Operations on 
Federal Leases (Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas). 

Examples of such resource protection measures 
are as follows: 

• "All open pits and tanks being used in 
conjunction with the development and 
production of this lease will be netted or 
otherwise covered no later than four (4) days 
after final drilling depth is achieved and until 
such time as they are removed and/or filled 
and reclaimed. The recommended coverings 
include hard covers or a screen material of 
small enough mesh size so as to prevent the 
entry and death of migratory birds. The U.S. 
FWS, Division of Law Enforcement, has 
prepared materials which provide guidelines for 
covering oil field pits and tanks". 

Note: The granting of four (4) working days 
for completion of covering or netting pits 
and/or tanks in no way limits your 
responsibility should migratory birds be found 
dead in the tanks or pits within the four (4) day 
period or during the actual drilling phase. 



• "Open- vent exhaust stacks on production 
equipment (heater/ treater, separator and 
dehydrator units), installed for use with this 
well, will be constructed, modified and/or 
otherwise equipped to prevent birds and bats 
from entering and to the extent practical, to 
discourage perching and nesting. These 
measures must be completed prior to 
production from this well passing through such 
equipment. " 

• "All new overhead electrical lines needed for 
the drilling or production phase of this well 
will be modified to help minimize accidental 
deaths of migratory birds. The poles and the 
wires will be modified to help minimize the 
likelihood of bird electrocutions and collisions. 
Guidelines can be found in a wide variety of 
publications. Two such sources of technical 
information are as follows: 'Suggested 
Practices for Raptor Protection on Power 
Lines: The State of the Art in 1981' and 
'Mitigating Bird Collisions With Power Lines: 
The State of the Art in 1994'. Also, the power 
company or cooperative that serves your area 
should be able to provide technical advice." 

SURFACE MANAGEMENT AGENCY 
STIPULATIONS 

Federal mineral resources under SMA lands 
within Texas are subject to each SMA's 
specific leasing stipulations regardless of 
alternative. Copies of the SMAs' oil and gas 
leasing stipulations are contained in the 
Appendix. Generally, these SMA stipulations 
can be divided into three NSO categories; 1) 
NSO with no directional drilling allowed 
(NSO/ND), 2) NSO with directional drilling 
allowed (NSO/DD), and 3) NSO described by 
elevation or surface use if suitable non-agency 
lands are included in the same drilling unit 
(NSO/ELEV). The SMAs 



12 



normally base lease stipulations to the surface 
land use or allocation at the particular site or 
installation. 



NSO/ND, 
Drilling 



No Surface Occupancy and No 



This stipulation, common to the COE and the 
BR, is designed to protect facilities such as 
dams, embankments and other areas from 
damage by oil and gas operations. This 
stipulation prohibits surface occupancy and 
directional drilling by the lessee under 
restricted areas. This stipulation allows the 
identified area to be included in a lease for the 
purpose of becoming a part of a drilling unit so 
that the United States will share in the royalty. 



NSO/DD No Surface Occupancy, Open for 
Directional Drilling 

This stipulation is used by SMAs to protect 
surface resource values and uses from drilling 
activities. This stipulation is applied to public 
use areas, recreation areas, state wildlife and 
waterfowl refuges, historical sites, trails, roads 
and military training areas. Directional drilling 
is permitted from outside the identified areas 
where occupancy is allowed. 

NSO/ELEV No Surface Occupancy based 
on Elevation 

This stipulation is used by the COE in 
combination with, "No drilling on Government 
owned surface where alternative surface 
ownership is available within the same drilling 
unit" to protect the integrity of their reservoirs 
at a specific level based upon lake elevation. 
Normally, this stipulation is subject to 
negotiation between the SMA and the lessee at 
the time of operational plan development.

PLAN APPLICATION 



All Federal minerals within the planning area 
have been evaluated using the previously 
described criteria and management guidance. 
The following description is presented by 
specific location and includes a short 
description of how RMP guidance applies to 
each location. The SMA lands are grouped 
according to agency jurisdiction, the split-estate 
lands are grouped by county by ecoregion. 

Federal minerals closed to leasing within Texas 
are listed by SMA in Table 2. 

Reasons for a SMA to withhold consent to 
lease vary from agency to agency however, 



43 CFR 3100.0-3 specifically identifies 
National Park Lands and areas within city 
limits as excluded from leasing. The fact that 
all acquired Federal lands in Texas were 
obtained for a purpose other than mineral 
leasing and that mineral leasing and 
development may not be compatible with the 
reason for acquisition, is sufficient to withhold 
consent. Additionally, it should be pointed out 
that while these areas are closed to leasing, if 
Federal mineral estate is being drained by 
adjacent oil and gas activities, the Federal 
mineral estate being drained could be leased 
for inclusion in a unit for royalty purposes.

SPECIFIC SITE DESCRIPTIONS 



The following descriptions of the various SMA

BR Projects 

Oil and gas leasing stipulations for the 
following reservoir sites are contained in the 
BR GP-135 Special Stipulations document 
which is contained in the Appendix. The 
GP-135 stipulations provide for protection of 
BR projects by use of buffer zones which 
prohibit occupancy and/or drilling for a 
specific distance. 

Maximum project protection is provided by the 
use of NSO/ND to within 1000 feet under the 
Maximum Water Surface (MWS) by elevation 
as defined in Standing Operating Procedures of 
BR or to within 2,000 feet under dam 
embankments and appurtenance structures, 
outlet works, spillways, etc. or to within 
one-half mile (2,640 feet) of the centerline of 
any tunnel. Should the maximum project 
protection stipulation be waived by the BR, 
additional restrictions protect recreational 
developments, wildlife habitats, project 
facilities and water supplies by creating a 
NSO/DD buffer ranging from 200 to 500 feet 
around these areas. Stipulations protecting 
special wildlife habitats or significant surface 
resources have been identified by project site. 
The overlapping buffer zones identified for 
each surface resource results in special 
stipulations covering acreage greater than the 
project total. 

In all cases, GP-135 requires a site specific 
surface use plan approved by the BR Area 
Manager prior to any lease development. 
Whenever a conflict occurs concerning the 
applicability of a BR stipulation, the more 
restrictive stipulation will apply. 



CHOKE CANYON DAM AND 
RESERVOIR - NUECES RIVER 
PROJECT MAP 30 

BR Project 26,000 acres 

Description 

The Nueces River Project is located in Live 
Oak and McMullen Counties, midway between 
the cities of San Antonio and Corpus Christi. 
Choke Canyon Dam is on the Frio River about 
4 miles west of the town of Three Rivers 
named for the confluence of the Frio, Nueces 
and Atascosa Rivers. Low-lying hills force the 
three rivers into a constricted channel, thus the 
name Choke Canyon. Live oak and post oak 
trees are generally found near the rivers while 
mesquite, huisache, blackbrush and grasses 
cover most of the area. The area has long and 
hot summers, mild winters and erratic 
precipitation. Occasional hurricanes produce 
major storms and flooding. The Nueces River 
Project was authorized by P.L. 93-493, dated 
October 27, 1972, to develop a dependable 
water supply for municipal and industrial use 
by the City of Corpus Christi and other areas 
of the Coastal Bend. The multipurpose project 
also provides for fish and wildlife conservation 
and recreational opportunities. 

Operation and maintenance of the project has 
been turned over to the City and the Nueces 
River Authority. Under the terms of a separate 
agreement, the land and water areas within the 
reservoir boundary are managed for recreation 
and fish and wildlife purposes by the TPWD 
except for a designated area around the dam. 
The dam and surrounding area are operated 
and maintained by the City of Corpus Christi.

Navidad River Valley 4 miles upstream from 
the confluence of the Lavaca and Navidad 
Rivers. The reservoir, Lake Texana, includes 
an eighteen mile reach of the Navidad River 
Valley and the lower portions of the Mustang 
creek and Sandy Creek Valleys. Water is 
collected from about 1 ,400 square miles of the 
Navidad River Basin above the damsite. The 
Palmetto Bend Project was authorized by 
P.L. 90-562 dated October 12, 1968, for the 
primary purpose of providing a dependable 
municipal and industrial water supply of 
75,000 acre-feet annually to the Central Gulf 
Coast area. Lake Texana also provides 
associated recreational fish and wildlife 
facilities to several surrounding counties. The 
Lavaca-Navidad River Authority is responsible 
for operation and maintenance of the project. 
The TPWD manages Texana State Park located 
within the Lake Texana boundary. 



Description 

Sanford Dam and Reservoir is located on the 
High Plains in parts of Potter, Moore, 
Hutchinson and Carson Counties and is 
approximately 40 miles northeast of the City of 
Amarillo. The aqueduct feature of the project 
is approximately 320 miles long, traverses 
several Texas Panhandle counties and serves 1 1 
cities in the High Plains area. The Canadian 
River Project was authorized by an act dated 
December 29, 1950, for the purpose of 
delivering water for municipal and industrial 
use, controlling floods and providing recreation 
and fish and wildlife benefits. Under the terms 
of the repayment contract for project 
construction costs, operation and maintenance 
of Sanford Dam and Lake Meredith was 
originally turned over to the Canadian River 
Municipal Water Authority (CRMWA). 

By legislation dated November 28, 1990, the 
lands, waters and interests therein, except for 
approximately 700 acres around Sanford Dam, 
were transferred to the NPS for administration 
as a NRA. The 700 acre area at the dam

operated and maintained by the CRMWA. 

SMA Lease Stipulations 

NSO/ND stipulation will apply within the area 

of the dam remaining under BR jurisdiction. 

Should BR project lands at Lake Meredith be 
available for lease the stipulations described 
above would apply.

SPLIT-ESTATE TRACTS 

All Federal land ownership within Texas has 
been acquired through purchase, foreclosure 
and/or donation. 

When these acquired lands are no longer 
needed, the government disposes of these lands 
through transfer to non-Federal ownership. In 
some cases the government retains ownership 
of the mineral estate under those lands 
disposed. These severed mineral estates are 
known as split-estate. For oil and gas leasing 
purposes the BLM is the SMA for split-estate 
tracts within Texas. 

Currently, there are approximately 30,000 
acres of split-estate tracts which vary in size 
from less than one acre to several thousand 
acres, and are located throughout the state. 
The larger tracts result from military base 
closings where the minerals were retained, 
such as Eagle Mountain Marine Corps Air 
Station north of the City of Fort Worth or 
Ellington AFB in the City of Houston. 

Split-estate acreage figures will increase with 
future military base closing as well as the 
disposal of Federal surface locations within the 
State. 



Split-Estate Lease Stipulations 
Due to the fact that the exact location of all 
split-estate minerals within Texas is unknown 
and/or unmapped, the BLM is not able to 
evaluate this split-estate on a site specific basis 
at this time for the RMP/EIS effort. All 
leasing of split-estate minerals to date within 
Texas has required the development of site 
specific EAs at the time of lease 
application/ nomination. The site specific lease 
stipulations are developed at the time of EA 
preparation. 

As split-estate tracts are nominated for leasing, 
the applicant nominating the tract will be 
required to provide all necessary maps and 
resource information needed by the BLM to 
complete a site specific EA/EIS at the time of 
application. Following the completion of the 
site specific EA or EIS, the BLM will either 
reject the nomination or allow the parcel to be 
placed on a sale list for competitive bid with 
the appropriate leasing stipulations attached. 

No split-estate within city limits would be 
available for lease.

PLAN IMPLEMENTATION AND MONITORING 



IMPLEMENTING THE PLAN 



CHANGING THE PLAN 



The approved Texas RMP provides the 
framework and guidelines for making specific 
management decisions for the planning area for 
the next 20 years. Implementation of the 
management decisions contained within the 
Texas RMP is considered complete with RMP 
approval. All future resource management 
authorizations and actions, including budget 
proposals, will conform with the approved 
Texas RMP. 

MONITORING THE PLAN 

Monitoring provides a record of the progress 
made in implementing the RMP. This 
monitoring record contains information for use 
in evaluating the Plans effectiveness and 
usefulness in the management of public 
resources. Plan monitoring will be performed 
by periodic managerial review to ensure that all 
land-use management decisions conform to the 
Plan and to the established guidelines. 
On-the-ground actions resulting from 
management decisions will be monitored by 
agency personnel to establish how effective the 
management measures are at minimizing 
environmental impacts. Where such 

management measures are found to be 
ineffective through monitoring, these measures 
will be revised through the RMP amendment 
process. 



The Plan may be changed, if necessary through 
amendment. Monitoring and evaluation 
findings, new data, and new or revised policies 
will be evaluated to determine if there is a need 
for an amendment. Any change in 
circumstances or conditions which affect the 
scope, terms or conditions of the RMP may 
warrant an amendment. In all cases, a 
proposed action that does not conform to the 
RMP or was not addressed by the RMP and 
warrants further consideration before an RMP 
revision is scheduled would require an 
amendment. Generally an RMP amendment is 
site specific or involves only one planning 
issue. 

A plan revision, if necessary would involve the 
preparation of a new RMP for the entire 
planning area. 

PUBLIC EWOLVEMENT 

Public opinion, input and involvement has been 
sought throughout the planning and decision 
making process. Public participation was 
documented in detail in Chapter 5 of the 
Proposed RMP/FEIS. An annual RMP 
summary document will be prepared to inform 
the public of the progress made in plan 
implementation. This summary will also 
describe the results of monitoring and 
evaluation of the effectiveness of the RMP 
decisions concerning protection of the 
environment. All persons on the RMP mailing 
list will be sent copies of the RMP summary 
documents.

SPECIAL STIPULATION - BUREAU OF RECLAMATION 

To avoid interference with recreation development and/or impacts to fish and wildlife habitat and to assist in 
preventing damage to any Bureau of Reclamation dams, reservoirs, canals, ditches, laterals, tunnels, and related 
facilities, and contamination of the water supply therein, the lessee agrees that the following conditions shall 
apply to all exploration and developmental activities and other operation of the works thereafter on lands 
covered by this lease: 

1. Prior to commencement of any surface-disturbing work including drilling, access road work, 

and well location construction, a surface use and operations plan will be filed with the appropriate officials 
A copy of this plan will be furnished to the Area Manager, Oklahoma-Texas Area Office, Great Plains Region 
Bureau of Reclamation, 420 West Main, Suite 630, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73102 for review and consent 
prior to approval of the plan. Such approval will be conditioned on reasonable requirements needed to prevent 
soil erosion, water pollution, and unnecessary damages to the surface vegetation and other resources, including 
cultural resources, of the United States, its lessees, permittees, or licensees, and to provide for the restoration 
of the land surface use and vegetation. The plan shall contain provisions as the Bureau of Reclamation may 
deem necessary to maintain proper management of the water, recreation, lands, structures, and resources 
including cultural resources, within the prospecting, drilling, or construction area. 

Drilling sites for all wells and associated investigations such as seismograph work shall be 
included in the above-mentioned surface use and operation plan. 

If later explorations require departure from, or additions to the approved plan, these revisions 
or amendments, together with a justification statement for proposed revisions, will be submitted for approval 
to the Area Manager, Oklahoma-Texas Area Office, Bureau of Reclamation, or his authorized representative. 

Any operations conducted in advance of approval of an original, revised, or amended 
prospecting plan, or which are not in accordance with an approved plan, constitute a violation of the terms of 
this lease. The Bureau of Reclamation reserves the right to close down operations until such corrective action 
as is deemed necessary, is taken by the lessee. 

2. No occupancy of the surface of the following excluded areas is authorized by this lease. It 

is understood and agreed that the use of these areas for Bureau of Reclamation purposes is superior to any 
other use. The following restrictions apply only to mineral tracts located within the boundary of Bureau of 
Reclamation project where the United States owns 100 percent of the fee mineral interest. 

a. Within 500 feet on either side of the centerline of any and 
all roads or highways within the leased area. 

b. Within 200 feet on either side of the centerline of any and 
all trails within the leased area. 

c. Within 500 feet of the normal high-water line of any and all 
live streams in the leased area. 

d. Within 400 feet of any and all recreation developments 
within the leased area. 

e. Within 400 feet of any improvements either owned, 
permitted, leased, or otherwise authorized by the Bureau of

of the facility or 50 feet from the outside toe of the canal, 
lateral, or drain embankment, whichever distance is greater, 
for irrigation facilities without clearly marked rights-of-way 
within the leased area. 

A-l 



j. Providing that appropriate environmental measures can be 

ensured, and providing further that Reclamation project 
works and other public interests can be protected, 
Reclamation may consider, on a case-by-case basis, waiving 
the requirements specified in Section 2 hereof. HOWEVER, 
LESSEES ARE ADVISED THAT OBTAINING SUCH A

GENERAL STIPULATIONS 

1. All rights under this lease are subordinate to the right of the United States to flood and 
submerge the lands, permanently or intermittently, in connection with the construction and operation 
and maintenance of the Dam and Reservoir, Project, 



2. All surface work performed by the lessee on the lands shall be under the general supervision 
of the Area Manager, Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) in direct charge of the project, and shall 
be subject to such conditions and regulations as he may prescribe. Detailed plans and location for 
all structures, appurtenances thereto, and surface disturbance work on the leased lands shall be 
submitted to the said Area Manager for approval in advance of commencement of any surface work 
on the said leased lands. At least 60 days or more lead time is preferred. All oil or gas drilling 
and producing operations shall be under the supervision of the District Manager, Bureau of Land 
Management (BLM), in accordance with 43 CFR 3160. The authorized representatives of 
Reclamation and BLM shall have the right to enter on the leased premises at any time to inspect 
both the installation and operational activities of the lessee. 

A. Predrilling Conditions: 

1. No exploratory drilling, pit construction, or site clearing will occur until approval is granted 
by the appropriate Reclamation representatives in consultation with the local managing agency (s). 

2. No well shall be drilled for oil or gas below the surface elevation of feet. (This 

elevation restriction does not apply to areas downstream of the dam.) No drilling will be allowed 
within feet of any developed recreation area. 

3. All storage tanks shall be constructed outside the flood plain above elevation feet 

(maximum water surface). This elevation restriction does not apply to areas downstream of the dam. 
Berms shall be constructed around storage batteries, tanks, and separators to contain their entire 
volume should an accidental spill or rupture occur. 

4. Drilling a well for oil and gas is prohibited within feet of any dam, dike, or other 

major structures, unless otherwise approved by the Area Manager in consultation with the local 
managing agency(s). 

5. No well shall be drilled within 1/8 mile (660 feet) of a river, channel, permanent stream, 
tributary, or marsh site unless otherwise approved by the Area Manager in consultation with the 
local managing agency (s). To protect watersheds, slopes in excess of 40 percent (2.5:1) should be 
avoided where possible. 

6. All drilling operations shall be conducted in accordance with the applicable State laws 
relative to municipal water supplies. 



A- 3 



7. No surface disturbance shall occur until completion of an environmental analysis of the 
proposed drilling activity by Reclamation and all coordination matters are completed. This analysis 
will involve review of federally listed threatened and endangered plant and animal species, 
protection of wetlands, cultural resources, and water quality associated concerns. Certain data needs 
may be requested from the applicant proposing a surface disturbance action. 

8. Where surface operations and facilities could reasonably be expected to discharge petroleum 
products into navigable waters and should oil or petroleum products be stored onsite and facilities 
have an aggregate storage of 1,320 gallons or more or single containers with capacity of 660 gallons 
or more, a "Spill Prevention Control and Counter Measure Plan" shall be prepared and must be 
maintained and kept available for inspection onsite (if manned) or at the nearest field office if 
unmanned. In the event of a spill or leakage, the lessee assumes all responsibility for cleanup and 
damages. 

9. At lessee's expense, a cultural resource survey of lands that may be disturbed must be 
completed prior to any surface disturbance. If during operations the Lessee or any person working 
in his behalf discovers any historic or prehistoric ruin, monument or site, or any object of antiquity 
subject to the Archeological Resource Protection Act of 1979 or the National Historic Preservation 
Act of 1966, as amended, and Reclamation Instructions 376.11, then work shall be suspended and 
the discovery promptly reported to Reclamation. When directed by Reclamation's authorized 
representative, the Lessee shall obtain at his expense a qualified archeologist to examine and, if 
necessary, excavate or gather such ruins or objects. 

10. No "mud pits" shall be constructed below elevation feet. (This elevation restriction 

does not apply to areas downstream of the dam.) Pits shall be well constructed in such a manner 
to prevent leaching of chemicals into the water table and under no circumstances shall they be 
allowed to leak or be cut to drain. Lining mud pits with plastic may be required. They shall not be 
located on natural drainages. In some situations, such as drilling in a flood plain, a closed mud 
system may be required with container ization of drill cuttings. Waste or discharge of any kind shall 
not be allowed to enter any drainage. Any plastic material used to line pits and/or sumps shall be 
cut off below ground level, as far down as possible, and disposed of before the pits are covered. 
All unattended pits containing liquids shall be fenced, and the liquid portion shall be allowed to 
evaporate before the pits are broken. 

11. The derrick shall not be located closer than one and one-half times its height from any 
electrical power transmission line unless prior approval is obtained from the owner of the power 
company. Signs shall be posted warning the public to prevent entry to the jobsite. Also, adequate 
blowout preventers shall be properly maintained. 

12. All aboveground structures, not subject to applicable safety requirements, shall be painted 
to blend with the natural surroundings. The paint used shall be lusterless, nonreflective, flat, or 
semigloss color that blends with the area.

B. Roads 
1. The Lessee shall observe the following restrictions during exploration: 

a. Wherever possible, existing roads and trails are to be used as access to the drilling site. 
New road construction will be kept to a minimum, and new construction will not begin until the 
location is approved by the local managing agency. 

b. Each existing fence to be crossed by the lessee shall be braced and tied off before cutting 
so as to prevent slacking of the wire. The opening shall be protected as necessary during 
construction and well operation to prevent the escape of livestock. Upon completion of 
construction, the fence shall be repaired to the original standard of the existing fence. 

c. Cleared trees and shrubs will be removed and/or piled as brush piles for wildlife shelter 
as designated by the local managing agency. Available topsoil will be removed from the road right- 
of-way and stored in a topsoil stockpile. 

d. New access roads shall normally be a maximum of 30 feet wide including drainage 
ditches and culverts. Road surface shall be graveled to a thickness identified as suitable for the safe 
operation of the vehicles and equipment at speeds proposed. The road shall be posted with curve 
signs and maximum speed limits. Speeds shall be limited on curves and posted to speeds that will 
permit a vehicle to be stopped within one-half the minimum sight distance. The road shall be 
maintained in safe condition. 

e. At the request of the local managing agency, on new access roads the Lessee shall 
construct cattle guards or install gates with locks which will be maintained by the Lessee during 
drilling operations and all such times thereafter as production continues. Fencing of roads may be 
required. 

f. Roads shall be maintained in suitable condition for vehicle passage during the duration 
of drilling activities with special consideration given to erosion control during wet and muddy 
periods. 

g. Existing roads shall be returned to original or equivalent condition after drilling 
equipment has been removed. 

h. All roads shall be adequately drained to control runoff and soil erosion. Drainage 
facilities may include ditches, water bars, culverts, and/or any other measures deemed necessary 
by Reclamation representatives. The following is a general guide for the spacing of water bars: 



Present Slope 

less than 2 percent 200 feet 

2 to 4 percent 100 feet 

4 to 5 percent 75 feet 

more than 5 percent 50 feet 



A- 5 



i. In the event of a "dry hole", any new road construction sites will be revegetated by the 
drilling company, with native and/or adapted grasses, forbs, and shrubs as requested by 
Reclamation, unless the local managing agency indicates in writing that the road is to remain. 
Revegetation is to be accomplished by seeding and fertilizing the area within 1 year of completion 
at recommended seeding rates and dates. 

2. The Lessee shall observe the following stipulations should oil or gas be found and production 
activities occur: 

a. Production company shall maintain road in suitable condition for vehicle passage. Public 
will be permitted to use road where existing road was originally open to such use. New road 
construction, if needed, can be exempt from public use. 

b. Should the local managing agency deem it necessary to control vehicle traffic into the 
area during any season of the year, the production company will provide a metal gate and lock. 

C. Drilling Pad and Reserve Pit : 

1 . Area cleared for the drilling pad site and reserve pit shall be the absolute minimum required 
for operations. 

2. All trees and shrubs removed from the pad site shall be piled near the site at places 
designated by the local managing agency for use as wildlife shelters. 

3. Available topsoil shall be removed from the drilling pad and pit site and stored in a topsoil 
stockpile. 

4. Diesel fuel tanks and other potential pollution sources will be surrounded by an earthen berm 
of sufficient height to contain their entire volume in the event of an accidental leak or rupture. 

5. The area will be kept well policed and free of trash and litter at all times, including access 
roads used solely by the Lessee. Litter blown out of the work area must be picked up. All waste 
associated with the drilling operations shall be removed and deposited in an approved sanitary 
landfill within 1 month after removal of the drilling rig. The Lessee shall comply with all State laws 
and regulations pertaining to the disposal of human waste. 

6. For the protection of livestock and wildlife, all pits containing toxic liquids shall be fenced 
and covered with a fine mesh netting (i.e., hardware cloth) with openings being of one-half inch 
or less. 

7. The Lessee will remove fluids and trash from all pits. The sludge pit will be pumped after 
drilling activities are completed and, following adequate drying, reshaped to original contours and 
covered with topsoil. This restoration must be accomplished within 90 days of completion of 
drilling. The area must then be revegetated as requested by Reclamation. 



A- 6 



D. Actions with a Producing Well : 

1. A minimum service area will be developed around the well head. No permanent material 
storage will be allowed on the lease. The remainder of the drilling pad will be covered with topsoil 
from the stockpile and restored to vegetation by tilling, fertilizing, and seeding. Specific seed types 
will be determined on a case-by-case basis by Reclamation in consultation with the local managing 
agency. 

2. The Lessee may be required to utilize electric or submersible pumps, where feasible, rather 
than fuel-powered pumps (or other machinery). All electric lines must be buried to a depth of 15-18 
inches. 

3. All transfer lines from well site to tank battery, saltwater disposal well, or the like, must 
be buried 3 feet below the surface and a minimum depth of 4 feet at stream, creek, and river 
channel crossings. 

4. When possible, a common point of collection shall be established to minimize the number 
of tank batteries. 

E. Actions with a Nonproducing Well : 

1. All disturbed areas will be recontoured, covered with topsoil, and revegetated. All trash 
will be removed from the lease site. 

2. Gates and cattle guards shall be removed where requested by the local managing agency. 
Any openings in fences will be restored to original condition. 

F. General : 

1. The Lessee shall limit access to well and storage locations on the leased property to 
authorized personnel. 

2. The Lessee agrees to cease all operations and make all necessary corrections to the 
satisfaction of the representative of Reclamation in consultation with the local managing agency 
before resuming any operations should any violations of the terms of this lease occur. 

3. The Lessee shall not permit any nuisance to be maintained on the premises and shall not use 
said premises for any purposes other than those authorized in the lease. Before abandoning any 
well, the Lessee shall securely plug the same so as to effectually shut off water from the oil-bearing 
stratum. 

4. The Lessee shall carry on the development and/or operation of the leased premises in a 
workmanlike manner and shall not commit or suffer to be committed waste upon the lands in his 
occupancy and use. In drilling operations, the Lessee shall only use so much of the land as is 



A- 7 



necessary; shall safeguard the lakes and streams from any pollution; and shall not permit oil, 
saltwater, drilling mud, or other deleterious substances to escape onto the land, but the same shall 
be retained in proper tanks, receptacles, or in pits prepared for such purpose; and after the 
termination of drilling operations, any such pits shall be filled and land properly restored to its 
original condition, and only so much thereof shall be used in the production of the leased premises 
as is reasonably necessary to operate any well or wells thereon. 

5. Lessee shall provide all subcontractors and assigns, especially the dirt contractor, with a 
copy of the above stipulations prior to construction of the road, pad, or associated developments.

LONE STAR ARMY AMMUNITION PLANT 

MINERAL LEASING STIPULATIONS 
Subject Lease No. 



It is understood by all parties that the following 
fifteen (15) mineral, leasing stipulations are a part of 
subject lease and may be waived or modified only upon 
the written concurrence of the installation commander, 
Lone Star Army Ammunition Plant, Texas (LSAAP) , 
(hereinafter "Commander") and the written approval of 
the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land 
Management (hereinafter "BLM"), or authorized 
representatives. Compliance with these stipulations 
will be at no cost to the United States: 



1. The Lessee understands that its activity on LSAAP 
requires prior approval of the BLM, and that BLM 
approval requires the concurrence of the Commander, 
where necessary. Requirements which may be imposed 
include but are not limited to prohibitions or 
specifications on: 

a. access (e.g., time of year, gates, roads, 
construction, maintenance, pipelines, vegetation 
disposal) ; 

b. exploration activities; 

c. location, design, and timing of construction of 
drilling, collection, and storage facilities (e.g., 
burial of wellhead and equipment in underground 
bunkers, depth of burial of flow lines); 

d. use and protection of LSAAP water supply (e.g., 
water quality testing) ; 

e. protection of the environment (e.g., hazardous 
waste areas, endangered species, erosion control, 
pollution prevention) and protection of objects of 
historic and scientific significance; 

f. safety and fire protection measures (e.g., use 
of explosives, safe working distances from ammunition 
and explosives, construction and maintenance of 
firebreaks, development of contingency plans in the 
event of danger to persons or property, posting of 
signs) ; 



A-ll 



g. use of communication and transportation systems; 

h. LSAAP security (e.g., authorized operation 
hours, worker identification); 

i. management of production area (e.g., size, 
fencing, gates, cattle guards, interim revegetation) ; 

j. reclamation measures; or 

k. attendance at meetings (e.g., pre-operations 
conference, post-operations conference) . 

2 . The Lessee may only occupy the surface of the lands 
that are cross-hatched identified on the attached map, 
Exhibit "A"; the remaining areas identified on Exhibit 
"A" are only available for directional drilling. 

3 . The Lessee will make every effort to locate 
pipeline and access routes in existing utility and road 
corridors. The Lessee will furnish as-built drawings 
of completed pipelines at a scale and detail specified 
by the Commander . 

4. The Lessee in accepting this lease understands that 
the leased lands are part of LSAAP, a military 
installation. Mineral exploration and development in 
any restricted impact areas or areas involving 
ammunition or explosives is prohibited; however, these 
lands may be explored and produced by directional 
drilling at a safe distance from outside the areas as 
prescribed by Department of Defense ("DOD") or 
Department of the Army ("Army") regulations. 
Furthermore, the Lessee understands that future 
increased production, testing or storage of ammunition 
or explosives may further restrict the surface area 
available for lease operations. Safe distances from 
ammunition and explosive facilities are based on the 
quantity and type of explosive present or authorized 
and the proposed use (e.g., above or below ground, 
continuous or temporary presence of personnel) . The 
Lessee may obtain pertinent information on this subject 
from the LSAAP safety office. 

5. Before beginning any approved operations on LSAAP 
the Lessee must consult with third parties authorized 
to use real estate in the leased area and must document 
in any proposals for development the manner in which 
consideration is being given to programs for which 
third parties have contractual rights or 
responsibility. The Lessee may consult the records of 
the District Engineer, Forth Worth, Texas (hereinafter 



A- 12 



"District Engineer") to determine what real estate 
interests have been granted to third parties on LSAAP. 
On request of the BLM, the Commander may seek to 
resolve disputes between the Lessee and third parties 
if they cannot reach agreement. Resolutions will be 
coordinated with contracting officers or 
representatives of all parties involved. The Lessee 
shall hold the United States harmless for claims by 
such third parties arising from the Lessee's 
activities, including damage to pasture and cropland 
capabilities. 

6. Merchantable timber cleared from roads, pipeline 
rights of way, or drill sites will be disposed of in 
accordance with the Commander's instructions. 

7. The Lessee shall bear all costs of the following: 

a. Increased Army costs for its projects which are 
incurred by reason of the Lessee's activity on LSAAP. 
Such costs will be paid when demanded on a one time 
basis as a condition of approval of proposed 
operations . 

b. Any Army costs to administer and ensure lease 
compliance not otherwise funded by the Congress. 

c. The Lessee's share of road and bridge 
maintenance costs for use of LSAAP roads and bridges in 
accordance with a maintenance agreement. In 
calculating such costs, the drilling and production 
area, pipeline right-of-way, lengths of roads and 
bridges, and so forth will be considered. Payments 
shall be made in advance as a result of negotiations 
between LSAAP and the Lessee. 

d. Repair or restoration for damage or degradation 
of land or facilities, including that caused by 
subsidence and pollutant spills, resulting from the 
Lessee's activities. Where conditions of urgency exist 
as determined by the Commander and time is of the 
essence, the Lessee shall repair damages or degradation 
in a timely fashion in the manner specified by the 
Commander without awaiting confirmation from BLM. The 
Commander shall subsequently confirm oral orders to the 
Lessee in writing with copy furnished BLM and the 
District Engineer. If the Lessee cannot or will not 
immediately comply, the Commander may immediately act, 
and the Lessee shall be liable for reimbursement to the 
Army for all damages and costs of such action, 
including administrative costs and any surcharges that 
may be deemed appropriate . 



A-13 



8. The Lessee shall not pollute the air, ground, or 
water (including ground water) or create a public 
nuisance : 

a. Before beginning operations, the Lessee shall 
retain a local agent who may be served notice on these 
matters and who shall notify the Commander immediately 
of spills, or other unexpected threats or hazards to 
the environment . 

b. The Lessee shall hold the United States harmless 
for any claim, including equitable claims, court or 
legal expenses incurred by the United States, and fines 
or penalties imposed upon the United States which are 
related to unlawful pollution arising from the Lessee's 
use of the property. 

9 . The United States reserves the option to purchase 
up to one-hundred percent (100%) of the natural gas or 
oil refined, at the price defined below, under a 
utility service contract to be negotiated prior to the 
exercise of this right in accordance with present or 
future DOD or Army regulations. Any product purchased 
by the Government shall be for the sole use of Army or 
DOD installation tenants located within a one-hundred 
fifty (150) mile radius of Headquarters, LSAAp and not 
for resale to the public. The Lessee shall include 
this paragraph in any contract or sale of natural gas 
or oil to other parties. 

a. The Lessee shall, in its sole discretion, 
determine whether oil or gas reserves are present on 
LSAAP in sufficient quantities to permit commercial 
development. After the Lessee has determined and 
declared that commercial production is possible, the 
Government and Lessee will have four (4) months in 
which to negotiate the specific terms of any sale and 
begin delivery of production. Except during 
mobilization or surge periods, the Commander shall have 
the right to change its election under this option, but 
in no case more often than once every twelve (12) 
months . 

b. The price paid to the Lessee by the United States 
shall be the average of the three lowest publicly- 
posted or "spot" prices for the delivered, refined 
product as announced monthly by the three largest 
purchasers in Texas Railroad Commission District-6. 
Specific details of the price and actual quantity of 
product shall be negotiated during sales contract 
procedures. The sale price may be adjusted to reflect 



A-14 



any unusual (unanticipated) capital investment and 
transportation costs incurred by the Lessee. Such 
costs should be negotiated in paragraph 9a. In all 
cases, the Lessee shall bear all costs on a 
nonreimbursable basis associated with maintaining the 
well site (including meters) during the producing life 
of the well and salvaging such facilities when 
production is ended. 

c. The Lessee shall routinely inspect and calibrate 
equipment involved with the exercise of this option 
with (BLM) . BLM may require the Lessee at least 
annually to engage an independent party acceptable to 
BLM to test meters for accuracy and to furnish written 
findings to BLM. 

10. Notwithstanding any other stipulation, or 
condition of the lease, the United States and its 
officers, agents, servants and employees ("the released 
parties") shall not be responsible for damages to 
property, injury to persons, or any other cause of 
action ("released actions") which may arise from or be 
incident to this lease or the Lessee's use and 
occupation of the leased premises. Released actions 
include, without limitations, damages to the Lessee's 
property, injury to the Lessee's person, or other cause 
of action of the Lessee, or such damage, injury or 
other cause of action of the Lessee's officers, agents, 
servant employees, invitees of any of these, or anyone 
else otherwise on or off said premises incident to the 
lease. Released actions include any actions arising 
from flooding of the lease premises. The Lessee shall 
hold harmless and indemnify the released parties for 
released actions which may arise from or be incident to 
this lease or the Lessee's use or occupation of the 
leased premises. 

11. The Lessor's rights described in the printed BLM 
lease form include the rights of the Army. 

12. The Secretary of the Army or designee reserves the 
right to require cessation of operation if a national 
emergency arises or if the Army needs the leased 
premises for a mission incompatible with lease 
operations. On approval from higher authority, the 
Commander will give the Lessee written notice or, if 
time permits, request the BLM to give notice of the 
required cessation. The Lessee understands the lease 
rights granted by this instrument do not include the 
period of any such cessation and the United States has 
no obligation to compensate the Lessee for damages 
(including contractual losses) resulting from the 



A-15 



exercise of this stipulation. The Lessee shall include 
this stipulation in contracts with third parties to 
supply oil and gas. This stipulation shall not affect 
the Lessee's right to seek suspension of the lease term 
from the BLM. Whether or not a suspension is granted 
will have no effect on cessation of operations as 
stipulated herein. 

13. If the Commander or the authorized representative 
discovers an imminent danger to safety or security 
which allows no time to consult BLM, that person may 
order such activities stopped immediately. The 
authorized officer of BLM shall review the order and 
determine the need for further remedial action. 

14. If military or explosive contamination is found in 
the operating area, the operator shall immediately stop 
work, leave the area, notify the Commander and not 
return until the Commander advises that it is safe to 
return. 

15. It is in the best interest of LSAAP to determine 
if commercial deposits of oil or gas exist within LSAAP 
boundaries. The Authorized Officer (AO) of the BLM may 
specify rates of development and production pursuant to 
Section 4 of the Lease Terms and the Oil and Gas 
Operations Regulations at 43 CFR 3162.2(c). 
Accordingly, the operator will commence drilling within 
thirty-six (36) months of the effective date of this 
lease on acreage available for occupancy on this lease, 
or within an approved exploratory unit which includes 
this lease. Drilling operations shall be diligently 
prosecuted until a well capable of adequately testing, 
at a minimum, Paluxy, Moorings Port, and the Smackover 
Formations has been drilled. The operator shall not in 
any event be required to drill said well to a depth in 
excess of 8,500 feet. With the approval of the AO, a 
completion to a lesser depth than the Smackover may be 
made. However, not later than twelve (12) months after 
said completion to a lesser depth, the operator shall 
commence drilling a well to test, at a minimum, the 
Formations mentioned above. Additional wells may be 
drilled as deemed necessary by the AO, after 
consultation with the Lessee, based on test results and 
well spacing rules. 

Failure to comply with this stipulation will result in 
an assessment, civil penalty, or lease cancellation 
pursuant to 43 CFR 3162. The Lessee has the option to 
voluntarily cancel the lease in lieu of the assessment 
or civil penalty.

LEASE TERMS 



Sec. 1 . Rentals— Rentals shall be paid to proper office of lessor in advance of each lease year. 
Annual rental rates per acre or fraction thereof are: 

(a) Noncompetitive lease, $1.50 for the first 5 years; thereafter $2.00; 

(b) Competitive lease, $1.50; for primary term; thereafter $2.00; 

(c) Other, see attachment, or 

as specified in regulations at the time this lease is issued. 

If this lease or a portion thereof is committed to an approved cooperative or unit plan which 
includes a well capable of producing leased resources, and the plan contains a provision for 
allocation of production, royalties shall be paid on the production allocated to this lease. However, 
annual rentals shall continue to be due at the rate specified in (a), (b), or (c) for those lands 
not within a participating area. 

Failure to pay annual rental, if due, on or before the anniversary date of this lease (or next 
official working day if office is closed) shall automatically terminate this lease by operation of 
law. Rentals may be waived, reduced, or suspended by the Secretary upon a sufficient showing 
by lessee. 

Sec. 2. Royalties— Royalties shall be paid to proper office of lessor. Royalties shall be computed 
in accordance with regulations on production removed or sold. Royalty rates are: 

(a) Noncompetitive lease, 1214%; 

(b) Competitive lease, 1214%; 

(c) Other, see attachment; or 

as specified in regulations at the time this lease is issued. 

Lessor reserves the right to specify whether royalty is to be paid in value or in kind, and the 
right to establish reasonable minimum values on products after giving lessee notice and an 
opportunity to be heard. When paid in value, royalties shall be due and payable on the last day 
of the month following the month in which production occurred. When paid in kind, production 
shall be delivered, unless otherwise agreed to by lessor, in merchantable condition on the premises 
where- produced without cost to lessor. Lessee shall not|be required to hold such production 
in storage beyond the last day of the month following the month in which production occurred, 
nor shall lessee be held liable for loss or destruction of royalty oil or other products in storage 
from causes beyond the reasonable control of lessee. 

Minimum royalty in lieu of rental of not less than the rental which otherwise would be required 
for that lease year shall be payable at the end of each lease year beginning on or after a discovery 
in paying quantities. This minimum royalty may be waived, suspended, or reduced, and the 
above royalty rates may be reduced, for all or portions of this lease if the Secretary determines 
that such action is necessary to encourage the greatest ultimate recovery of the leased resources, 
or is otherwise justified. 

An interest charge shall be assessed on late royalty payments or underpayments in accordance 
with the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act of 1982 (FOGRMA) (30 U.S.C. 1701). 
Lessee shall be liable for royalty payments on oil and gas lost or wasted from a lease site when 
such loss or waste is due to negligence on the pan of the operator, or due to the failure to comply 
with any rule, regulation, order, or citation issued under FOGRMA or the leasing authority. 

Sec. 3. Bonds— A bond shall be filed and maintained for lease operations as required under 
regulations. 

Sec. 4. Diligence, rate of development, unitization, and drainage— Lessee shall exercise reasonable 
diligence in developing and producing, and shall prevent unnecessary damage to, loss of, or 
waste of leased resources. Lessor reserves right to specify rates of development and production

days of notice, if deemed necessary for proper development and operation of area, field, or pool 
embracing these leased lands. Lessee shall drill and produce wells necessary to protect leased 
lands from drainage or pay compensatory royalty for drainage in amount determined by lessor. 

Sec. 5. Documents, evidence, and inspection— Lessee shall file with proper office of lessor, 
not later than 30 days after effective date thereof, any contract or evidence of other arrangement 
for sale or disposal of production. At such times and in such form as lessor may prescribe, lessee 
shall furnish detailed statements showing amounts and quality of all products removed and sold, 
proceeds therefrom, and amount used for production purposes or unavoidably lost. Lessee may 
be required to provide plats and schematic diagrams showing development work and 
improvements, and reports with respect to parties in interest, expenditures, and depreciation 
costs. In the form prescribed by lessor, lessee shall keep a daily drilling record, a log, information 
on well surveys and tests, and a record of subsurface investigations and furnish copies to lessor 
when required. Lessee shall keep open at all reasonable times for inspection by any authorized 
officer of lessor, the leased premises and all wells, improvements, machinery, and fixtures thereon, 
and all books, accounts, maps, and records relative to operations, surveys, or investigations 
on or in the leased lands. Lessee shall maintain copies of all contracts, sales agreements, accounting 
records, and documentation such as billings, invoices, or similar documentation that supports 



costs claimed as manufacturing, preparation, and/or transportation costs. All such records shall 
be maintained in lessee's accounting offices for future audit by lessor. Lessee shall maintain 
required records for 6 years after they are generated or, if an audit or investigation is underway,

impacts to the land, air, and water, to cultural, biological, visual, and other resources, and to 
other land uses or users. Lessee shall take reasonable measures deemed necessary by lessor to 
accomplish the intent of this section. To the extent consistent with lease rights granted, such 
measures may include, but are not limited to, modification to siting or design of facilities, timing 
of operations, and specification of interim and final reclamation measures. Lessor reserves the 
right to continue existing uses and to authorize future uses upon or in the leased lands, including 
the approval of easements or rights-of-way. Such uses shall be conditioned so as to prevent 
unnecessary or unreasonable interference with rights of lessee. 

Prior to disturbing the surface of the leased lands, lessee shall contact lessor to be apprised 
of procedures to be followed and modifications or reclamation measures that may be necessary. 
Areas to be disturbed may require inventories or special studies to determine the extent of impacts 
to other resources. Lessee may be required to complete minor inventories or short term special 
studies under guidelines provided by lessor. If in the conduct of operations, threatened or 
endangered species, objects of historic or scientific interest, or substantial unanticipated 
environmental effects are observed, lessee shall immediately contact lessor. Lessee shall cease 
any operations that would result in the destruction of such species or objects. 
Sec. 7. Mining operations— To the extent that impacts from mining operations would be 
substantially different or greater than those associated with normal drilling operations, lessor 
reserves the right to deny approval of such operations. 

Sec. 8. Extraction of helium— Lessor reserves the option of extracting or having extracted helium 
from gas production in a manner specified and by means provided by lessor at no expense or 
loss to lessee or owner of the gas . Lessee shall include in any contract of sale of gas the provisions

taxes legally assessed and levied under laws of the State or the United States; accord all employees 
complete freedom of purchase; pay all wages at least twice each month in lawful money of the 
United States; maintain a safe working environment in accordance with standard industry practices; 
and take measures necessary to protect the health and safety of the public. 

Lessor reserves the right to ensure that production is sold at reasonable prices and to prevent 
monopoly. If lessee operates a pipeline, or owns controlling interest in a pipeline or a company 
operating a pipeline, which may be operated accessible to oil derived from these leased lands, 
lessee shall comply with section 28 of the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920. 

Lessee shall comply with Executive Order No. 11246 of September 24, 1965, as amended, 
and regulations and relevant orders of the Secretary of Labor issued pursuant thereto. Neither 
lessee nor lessee's subcontractors shall maintain segregated facilities. 
Sec. 11. Transfer of lease interests and relinquishment of lease— As required by regulations, 
lessee shall file with lessor any assignment or other transfer of an interest in this lease. Lessee 
may relinquish this lease or any legal subdivision by filing in the proper office a written 
relinquishment, which shall be effective as of the date of filing, subject to the continued obligation 
of the lessee and surety to pay all accrued rentals and royalties. 

Sec. 12. Delivery of premises— At such time as all or portions of this lease are returned to lessor, 
lessee shall place affected wells in condition for suspension or abandonment, reclaim the land 
as specified by lessor and, within a reasonable period of time, remove equipment and 
improvements not deemed necessary by lessor for preservation of producible wells. 
Sec. 13. Proceedings in case of default— If lessee fails to comply with any provisions of this 
lease, and the noncompliance continues for 30 days after written notice thereof, this lease shall 
be subject to cancellation unless or until the leasehold contains a well capable of production 
of oil or gas in paying quantities, or the lease is committed to an approved cooperative or unit 
plan or communitization agreement which contains a well capable of production of unitized 
substances in paying quantities. This provision shall not be construed to prevent the exercise 
by lessor of any other legal and equitable remedy, including waiver of the default. Any such 
remedy or waiver shall not prevent later cancellation for the same default occurring at any other 
time. Lessee shall be subject to applicable provisions and penalties of FOGRMA (30 U.S.C. 1701). 
Sec. 14. Heirs and successors-in-interest-Each obligation of this lease shall extend to and be

all construction and operation and maintenance charges be- 
coming due during such use or occupation upon any portion of 
the land so used and occupied; 

(b) to pay any damage caused to any reclamation project 
or water supply thereof by the lessee's failure to comply fully 
with the requirements of this lease; and 

(c) to recompense any nonmineral applicant, entryman, 
purchaser under the Act of May 16, 1930 (46 Stat. 367), or 
patentee for all damages to crops or to tangible improvements 
caused by drilling or other prospecting operations, where any 
of the lands covered by this lease are embraced in any non- 
mineral application, entry, or patent under rights initiated 
prior to the date of this lease, with a reservation of the oil 
deposits, to the United States pursuant to the Act of 
July 17, 1914 (38 Stat. 509). 



As to any lands covered by this lease within the area of any 
Government reclamation project, or in proximity thereto, the 
lessee shall take such precautions as required by the 
Secretary to prevent any injury to the lands susceptible to 
irrigation under such project or to the water supply thereof; 
provided that drilling is prohibited on any constructed works 
or right-of-way of the Bureau of Reclamation, and provided, 
further, that there is reserved to the lessor, its successors 
and assigns, the superior and prior right at all times to con- 
struct, operate, and maintain dams, dikes, reservoirs, canals, 
wasteways, laterals, ditches, telephone and telegraph lines, 
electric transmission lines, roadways, appurtenant irrigation 
structures, and reclamation works, in which construction, 
operation, and maintenance, the lessor, its successors and 
assigns, shall have the right to use any or all of the lands 
herein described without making compensation therefor, and 
shall not be responsible for any damage from the presence of 
water thereon or on account of ordinary, extraordinary, unex- 
pected, or unprecedented floods. That nothing shall be done 
under this lease to increase the cost of, or interfere in any 
manner with, the construction, operation, and maintenance of 
such works. It is agreed by the lessee that, if the construc- 
tion of any or all of said dams, dikes, reservoirs, canals, 
wasteways, laterals, ditches, telephone or telegraph lines, 
electric transmission lines, roadways, appurtenant irrigation 
structures or reclamation works across, over, or upon said 
lands should be made more expensive by reason of the 
existence of the improvements and workings of the lessee 
thereon, said additional expense is to be estimated by the 



Secretary of the Interior, whose estimate is to be final and 
binding upon the parties hereto, and that within thirty (30) 
days after demand is made upon the lessee for payment of any 
such sums, the lessee will make payment thereof to the 
United States, or its successors, constructing such dams, 
dikes, reservoirs, canals, wasteways, laterals, ditches, 
telephone and telegraph lines, electric transmission lines, 
roadways, appurtenant irrigation structures, or reclamation 
works, across, over, or upon said lands; provided, however, 
that subject to advance written approval by the United States, 
the location and course of any improvements or works and 
appurtenances may be changed by the lessee; provided, 
further, that the reservations, agreements, and conditions 
contained in the within lease shall be and remain applicable 
notwithstanding any change in the location or course of said 
improvements or works of lessee. The lessee further agrees 
that the United States, its officers, agents, and employees, 
and its successors and assigns shall not be held liable for 
any damage to the improvements or workings of the lessee 
resulting from the construction, operation, and maintenance of 
any of the works hereinabove enumerated. Nothing in this 
paragraph shall be construed as in any manner limiting other 
reservations in favor of the United States contained in 
this lease. 

The Lessee Further Agrees That there is reserved to 
the lessor, its successors and assigns, the prior right to use 
any of the lands herein leased, to construct, operate, and 
maintain dams, dikes, reservoirs, canals, wasteways, laterals, 
ditches, telephone and telegraph lines, electric transmission 
lines, roadways, or appurtenant irrigation structures, and also 
the right to remove construction materials therefrom, without 
any payment made by the lessor or its successors for such 
right, with the agreement on the part of the lessee that if the 
construction of any or all of such dams, dikes, reservoirs, 
canals, wasteways, laterals, ditches, telephone and telegraph 
lines, electric transmission lines, roadways, or appurtenant 
irrigation structures across, over, or upon said lands or the 
removal of construction materials therefrom, should be made 
more expensive by reason of the existence of improvements or 
workings of the lessee thereon, such additional expense is to 
be estimated by the Secretary of the Interior, whose estimate 
is to be final and binding upon the parties hereto, and that 
within thirty (30) days after demand is made upon the lessee 
for payment of any such sums, the lessee will make payment 
thereof to the United States or its successors constructing 
such dams, dikes, reservoirs, canals, wasteways, laterals, 
ditches, telephone and telegraph lines, electric transmission 
lines, roadways, or appurtenant irrigation structures across, 
over, or upon said lands or removing construction materials 
therefrom. The lessee further agrees that the lessor, its 
officers, agents, and employees and its successors and 
assigns shall not be held liable for any damage to the im- 
provements or workings of the lessee resulting from the 
construction, operation, and maintenance of any of the works

CORPS OF ENGINEERS. FORT WORTH DISTRICT. STIPULATIONS 

1. NSO/ND - No Surface Occupancy and No Drilling 

This stipulation applies to all Corps of Engineers (COE) fee ownership within 3,000 horizontal 
feet of prime facilities critical to the operation of a project. These facilities include the dam, 
spillway, outlet structure, levees and related structures. This stipulation allows the identified area 
to be included in a lease for the purpose of becoming a part of a drilling unit so that the 
United States will share in the royalty. 

2. NSO/DD - No Surface Occupancy, Open for Directional Drilling 

This stipulation applies to all designated parks, recreation areas, public use areas, wildlife 
management areas, archeological and historical sites, trails and roads, and the lake surface at the 
conservation pool elevation. Directional drilling is permitted from outside the identified areas 
where occupancy is allowed. 

3. NSO/ELEV - No surface Occupancy Based on Elevation 

This stipulation prohibits surface occupancy on all lands lying at or below the elevation of the 
spillway crest or tainter gate sill where alternative surface ownership is available within the same 
drilling unit. If no alternative surface ownership is available, in no case will surface occupancy 
be permitted below the 25-year frequency pool (as calculated by COE hydraulics engineering 
staff) or within 1,000 horizontal feet from the lake surface at the conservation pool elevation. 
The purpose of this stipulation is to protect the integrity of project land and water resources.
